They're Coming...

From the diary of Dr. Morongo Faust, the world's leading extraterrestrial leporidaeologist (rabbit scientist):

"July 27-
The Telepathic Killer Bunnies From Outer Space. That's what I used to call them. But time has passed and a bit more has been revealed about them to me.

It turns out they're a brilliant alien species and for millions of years they've thrived on their home planet, Vitamin B12 (that's a rough translation). However, something's gone terribly astray. A great horror has struck their binary bunny star system and it's forced them to leave!

With their highly advanced technology and much searching, they finally discovered Earth. Our planet was one so distant and isolated that the bunnies hoped they could be safe...

They were wrong. They're trying to warn us. The horror is coming. An evil that we have never known...

The Zombunnies are coming..."

Sure it sounds a little like Zamboni... but oh well! Each zombunnie has red eyes and a mouth slathered in blood. The blood is hand embroidered so every zombunnie will be unique. I've only finished a few so far and soon I'll be listing them on my Etsy shop as well as sending them to the gallery in New Orleans. That last one is particularly creepy... he's bleeding from his eyes!


There's other things to discuss! The deadline for the Plush You Show is rapidly approaching and I still have so much to get done!

For now, here's a peek at the first toy I'll be sending to the show!

His eye is a bit tough to see, I'm worried I should have added a bit of light color underneath first. But it is easier to see in person. I haven't made very many toys with noses but he has one! He also has fur which was fun and a pain to work with. He's real cute!

SO! PLUSH YOU!! The show is in October and I'm hoping to go but it seems very unlikely that I'll be able to afford to fly to Seattle... hahaha, but! The show should be awesome no matter what, with or without me there!

Keep an eye on the Plush You blog to for interviews with some of the artists that'll be participating in the show!

"Petrupo" It means pocket mouth (in my made up toy language). Sure, toys with mouths full of teeth are awesome and toys with silly lips are fun too! But there's something real precious about a monster with a pocket mouth!

This is Jorriee!

He's a snacker and a hugger. He may be attempting both those things in that last picture...

Hey! I haven't posted Bat pictures?!

There we go.

I've also emptied out my Etsy shop and I've FINALLY sent toys to the Made gallery in New Orleans. I'm awful at getting things done on time. But that'll have to change! There's so much happening nowadays!

Not only have I gotten started on my next shipment to the gallery, but I've also got to finish...
my toys for the Plush You show, then I also want to get into the next issue of Stuffed! A toy magazine!

So much to do! Bye bye bye! See you all a bit later!

A month in between blog posts?! That means a month since I've made anything new and wonderful! blah!

June has made me fat and lazy. Back to the toys.

Update soon.
